Have one old cat, who's almost 9 now, and who usually picks out the free space on the bed beside my head for a snoozing place.

Sister's dog, a black lab :) Dumb as two short planks tied together, and the dog's not too bright either :D

And sleeping on my chest as I type, a 9 week old kitten, called Schaeffer :)

Always had a cat, but the last male moggy had a scrap with a badger and was mauled and we had to put him down :(

my sister and I used to own loads of pets over the years..

2 budgies (Joey & Simon)

2 rabbits (Cindy and Snowy)
2 guinea pigs (can't remember what they were called)
numerous goldfish

10 head of tropical fish (var.)

Lucy(fer), 2.5yo black lab, none too bright on it. Picture the scene a la 1100 this very morn....

The Noisy family are out for a bracing trot along the prom, Lucy goes to see the sunken ornamental fountain (which is brimming due to our autumnal showers), forgets to stop and falls in arse over tit!:eek:
Noisy jnr paniced and wanted to jump in after her. Lucy just jumped out looking forlorn and proceeded to shake the smelly water all over us!:rolleyes:

I think that's what you call a "you've been framed" moment.
Black labs, none too bright, but loveable.

Yellow Lab x Collie (?)

Black Lab....and despite what has been said above, DEFINITELY smarter than the average bear! Sadly died last year and very much missed.

Horse....Cantankerous, Bolshie, Complex, Cranky and just Plain Difficult. However, he's getting on a bit now and when the inevitable happens I'll really miss the old b****r.

2 cats
1 Rabbit. The rabbit thinks its a cat though. It runs around the house chasing the cats (when its feeling lively). Uses the kitty litter tray and so we don't need a cage.

The dozy housekeeper says she posted a reply yesterday but as we cats all know, you can't rely on people to do things properly so we are doing it instead whilst she is out of the way. We are Roobarb and Custard Wombat. I, Roobarb, am a big soft ginger female and Custard is a slightly smaller tortoiseshell. The housekeeper has had lots of animals to look after in the past - cats, both moggies like us and siamese, dogs - Heinz 57's and a Cairn Terrier, rats, mice, rabbits, guinea pigs, stick insects and goldfish. She has also had hamsters but didn't manage to electrocute any of them. Roast hamster sounds quite appetising, wonder if we can persuade her to provide us with one as a treat. :D :D

Dozens of guineapigs, all much loved, presently only three. Spider - rescued from a local school - and Holly and Ivy (supposed to be female but aren't). Unfortunately the three of them fight and have to be kept separate.

Two budgies, the first of which had a irrational dislike of bald men. Couldn't ever let her out when a follically challenged person was in the house as she went straight to the head and proceeded to rake her claws across it.

A beautiful long haired ginger kitten that refused to co-operate with house training (he was very much an indoors cat and used to find my sister's hibernating tortoise and do unmentionables on the poor creature in its box). My father cruelly gave poor Poo-Bottom away when I was out one day and wouldn't tell me where he'd gone to for ages. He ended up as the resident cat in a smart restaurant (renamed Rastus) and lived on calves liver and prime fish. Surprisingly he never crapped indoors again from the moment he arrived. It is still not a subject to be discussed in my parents' house.

My sis used to have a Siamese cat called Jade.
Jade was one of the most beautiful of cats. very inquisitive, affectionate and vocal.
You could keep her occupied to the point of exhaustion (hers) by throwing something ( preferably soft and fluffy ) down from the top of the stairs. She'd chase it and bring it back up the stairs to you, for the cycle to be repeated as many times as you liked.
The only change to this behaviour was the gradual slowing down of said Jade as she got more and more out of breath !
My sis would knit small balls for this little game and Jade would sit watching the knitting process as if waiting for it to be finished and the game to begin !

Adorable nutter ! :)

My childhood main fur companion was a very large tortoiseshell cat called Marmalade - we were virtually inseparable (only time she would ignore me is if mom was preparing her food). She never quite forgave me for leaving for university and died at the age of 20! During our time together she tolerated a few other furry creatures (so long as they stayed in their cages/runs) which included a mouse, a hamster and rabbits.

Now my main fur-kid/companion is a wonderful black&tan Shiba Inu dog called Karma (Skiandu Knight Dragon). K has had a horribly tough life, I am his fourth pet home and "in between" he has been in rescue before his breeder each time found out and grabbed him back! He is, therefore, stunningly good looking but rather more quiet, shy, and fearful than the average in-your-face Shiba. I got him, instead of a puppy, cos he needed a home! He has his own website but I am a hopeless website-updater so it is a little out of date but there is a picture gallery at Karma (http://members.aol.com/karma21094) :D

Had 2, well in fact three budgies.

One was bright yellow all through and the other was black and blue. While cleaning the cage the black and blue flew out of the cage and out of the window never to be seen again. In a panic, my dad went to the pet shop and got another one. ONLY that this one was black and green, which he hadn't realised.

Anyways, when I asked him about it, he mumbled that whilst cleaning the cage, one got wet and washed the colour out. Which I believed.

anyways, the black and green snuffed it for no apparent reason and the yellow one was left on her own and too snuffed it a few days later. No idea why :(

Mmmmmmm...... way to many to name. Kept everything from tropical fish and hamsters to dogs and horses.

Currently only a cat owner (had to have the hamster put down about 2 months ago:( ), but I am in the process of looking for a new equine companion.

Animals are soooo much better than men!!!!;)

PS Jon I did bring back that camel, much to Dubyas disgust!! He is called Humpy, original or what????:p

How about the story of Fred the hamster (now deceased)......

Awoke one morning and went out of the bedroom to find piles of very dark brown colored substance on the carpet.

I immediately thought that one of the kids had suffered an attack of the flu and not quite made it to the loo. Due to all my colourful language the Supreme Commander of Domestic Affairs (the real boss) arrived on the scene, was suitably disgusted and retreated to the loo. Kids arrived to check out the commotion and went into the full denial mode (the Bart Simpson defence).

As I start to very carefully clear up the mess I spy Fred on the lose and looking a very strange brown colour with his fur all matted. As I capture him I look over and realize that he had managed to get a hold of some chocolate that one of the kids had left out and had been chewing it , filling his pouches and then regurgitating it in little brown mounds!

It took me a couple of hours to stop laughing and longer to clean up the carpet and be badgered by a 9 year old into giving Fred a sponge bath!

Fred survived for another 18 months and died of old age.

Always had Siamese cats...

Current two are Bagheera (Baggy) 'cos she's black and smart and Byron (aka Mr Ploppy) 'cos he's a sensitive type... actually we think he might be gay.

Love 'em to death (most of the time).

Had many pets of varying sorts over the years. My dear old cat was put to sleep early this year and am now down to last remaining pet ... one parrot named George whose main claim to fame is his ability to say "Hello Darlin', Hello Darlin'" at varying volume settings from soft whisper to loud screech that would wake the dead.

Kept a marine aquarium for a few years whose occupants included a moray eel, various marine creatures and a scorpion fish called Dennis (he was a dendrochirus) who used to feed from my hand. Maintaining the "balance" of this tank required the skill of a brain surgeon, the dexterity of a juggler and masters degrees in several of the sciences. The whole project came to an abrupt end when all the occupants fell victim to a virus

Never managed to electrocute any of them though ... :D
